Players’ Union Hail Pinnick, NFF Over Recongnition of Iloenyosi as Anambra FA Chairman

Encomium continues to pour in regarding the decision from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to validate Chikelue Iloenyosi as the chairman of Anambra State Football Association, reports www.totorinews.com

All Nigeria Professional Footballers Union (ANPFU) led by Abdul Sule, the president of the union has hailed Amaju Pinnick and the entire NFF executive committee members on the verdict to recognise and ratify the contentious October 2020 elections that brought in ex-Nigeria international Chikelue Iloenyosi as the the Chairman of Anambra State Football Association. 

“Of course, we are all very happy that one of us, a very selfless individual in the person of Chikelue Iloenyosi is now the chairman of Anambra State Football Association and we really thank the leadership of the NFF led by Amaju Pinnick and his board members for this opportunity to former Super Eagles player to serve in the capacity of an F.A chairman,” Abdul Sule told the media on Tuesday.

“We are particularly grateful to Pinnick for all his benevolence towards some of our members,  who faced different forms of health challenges.  Recently, he extended his kindness to Etim Esin, who had a serious knee problem that would have condemned him to the wheel chair for the rest of his life.

“Other former Nigeria Internationals like Femi Opabunmi, Wilson Oruma and the rest have all been helped through the caring heart of Pinnick and we commend the NFF President for these noble deeds.

“ANPFU being the only recognised footballers’ body in Nigeria will do everything in her power to assist Iloenyosi to succeed in this new task assigned to him and his team.

“Nigerians should discard any group parading itself as players’ union in the country, causing disaffection and disharmony. ANPFU is not recognised by the NFF, it is also fully approved and recognised by FIFPRO, the umbrella body of footballers worldwide.

“We urge all our members in Anamabra State, South East and the entire nation to rally round support for Iloenyosi, who is also chairman, board of trustees of ANPFU, in order for him and his team to take football to greater heights in the state,” he said.
